Does anyone have or knowwhere I can get a water quality report with the relevant info for brewers? I’m Hills District, WA. After an afternoon of searching it seems the best option may be to fork out to get a lab to test a bottle from my house?
Hi jc24 its hard to get a meaningful water report from the WA Water Authority they tend to quote a min and a max and state the water is within its parameters. The problem with getting your water tested is the WA water is a 'shandy' of desalination bore and dam and it can have enormous variations week to week - and on top of that they have started using chloramines at many of the water treatment plants which can be a bitch in your beer, some areas are worse than others, where I used to live the water was disgusting (Nedlands) down in Mandurah its not too bad but I ended going with RO, 'one' of the best moves I've made, if you go this route get a dow-filmtec filter the Chinese copies don't hit the ammonia part of the chloramine. Some people use Camden tablets, personally I dont use sulphites, I hate that $hit. fyi - https://www.psifilters.com.au/laund...se-osmosis-system-with-gauge-low-waste-1.html
